Sacked judge of The X Factor USA, Cheryl Cole has revealed that she will not allow Simon Cowell to make her into his new Sinitta. The Geordie singer has released herself of all ties with the TV mogul after fearing that Cowell was grooming her as his latest puppet.
Cowell launched Sinitta’s career back in 1986 and while he worked on making her a star the two had a love affair. Cheryl’s mum Joan suggested that Cheryl was worried that her career would be heavily influenced by Cowell. Joan said, "She was terrified Simon had become her puppet master and she was being turned into his new Sinitta - Simon's little pet.”
The 27 year old wants nothing more to do with Simon and has even resorted to ignoring his phone calls. An close source to Cole explained, "Simon made Cheryl a UK superstar. She became the nation's sweetheart. But after he dumped her in the US, she decided to make a stand to show she's not a needy puppy."
